Autumn at Bearnock Lodge is beautiful. The colours are stunning, and you’ll leave us with some picture-perfect memories. September 27th marks Tourism Day. So, to celebrate the occasion, we thought we would share five of our favourite sightseeing spots in the Scottish Highlands, be sure to take your camera!
Sightseeing in the Scottish Highlands
Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness
Just over a mile down the road from Bearnock Lodge on the banks of Loch Ness are the ruins of Urquhart Castle. Steeped in history the castle is set among the wild and natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands. Find out more about the castle by visiting the website HERE.
A little further afield is Culloden Battlefield. Hop in the car and drive for an hour to the wild moor at Culloden. Here you’ll discover the history of the final Jacobite uprising in 1745. The battlefield is home to a wide variety of wildlife. Find out more HERE.
The Jacobite Steam Train
Head south from Bearnock for ninety minutes and board the Jacobite Steam Train for a round trip from Fort William to Mallaig. It’s a perfect sightseeing adventure, where you’ll fall in love with the spectacular scenery of the Scottish Highlands along the way. It’s been described as one of the most remarkable railway journeys in the world. If you’re travelling with children, they’ll love the Harry Potter connection. Visit the website HERE for more information.
The Singleton of Glen Ord Distillery
This one is for the grown-ups, but a trip to the Scottish Highlands wouldn’t be complete without a distillery visit. You can even combine this with your day-trip to Culloden. Stop at Glen Ord Distillery & Visitor Centre on the return to pick up a bottle of single malt to sip by the fire at Bearnock! Visit the website HERE.
City of Inverness
And finally, a day trip to Inverness offers some spectacular sightseeing. The castle overlooking the River Ness and Saint Andrew’s Cathedral are both must-sees! And Inverness Botanic Gardens are a perfect destination on a fine Autumn day.
